Gentle Relief from Headache Pain in Delray Beach

Headaches and migraines affect the lives of nearly 46% of the worldwide adult population. Not only are these issues tough to manage, but they are also troublesome to diagnose and treat – as most health care professionals would tell you. Knowing the root cause of the issue, though, can go a long way to acquiring lasting relief from the intrusive condition.

Determining the Cause

Research has revealed several important facts relating to the cause of migraine and headache pain. These medical authorities have determined that many of these factors revolve around the area of the brain that connects to the upper part of the neck, otherwise known as the brainstem. Here is what studies have shown:

  1. Instability of the upper vertebrae (C1 and C2) can injure the brainstem
  2. Misalignment of the upper cervical spine impedes blood flow and normal neurological functions
  3. An irregular oxygen level in the brain is linked with headaches
  4. Obstruction of flow through vessels in this region can alter proper physiological and neurological functions

Finding Help for Headache Pain

Recommendations for the treatment of headaches and migraines range from mild natural remedies to intensive sedatives. How does one go about determining the right treatment? Here at Schrier Family Chiropractic, we use techniques that are specialized and highly effective at reducing and even eliminating the underlying cause of the condition.

Upper cervical chiropractors use particular testing and x-ray methods to determine if there is a misalignment of the C1 and C2 vertebrae. Gentle adjustments are then made to realign these important structures. Once they are back in place, healing of the affected area can happen naturally and normal flow and function resume. These delicate and precise procedures have proven effective in 85% of presented cases and with results within one month’s time. Natural and pharmaceutical-free treatment of headaches and migraine pain is well within reach.
